Thursdays with Tiffani

Wow, it's been a while since I have done this, I keep forgetting when it is Thursday! Don't forget to check out Thursdays with Tiffiny over at The Story of My Life!

I'm thankful for: My health. Over the last couple of days, I have dealt with a really nasty case of what I believe to be food poisoning. It has been really hard, but I am so thankful that for the most part, I am generally healthy. I cannot imagine what it must be like to be one of the many parents that live their daily lives with chronic conditions of some sort.

I am also very thankful for my amazing daughter Emma, who at the tender age of five, took charge yesterday and took care of the twins while I was curled up in a ball. She even changed poopy diapers and didn't make a mess. I am so proud of her for taking on the responsibility with a happy heart and a willing spirit.

I'm listening to: The kids sitting down watching the previews of a movie. Emma just told me, "Mommy! It's the twenty fifth alderversary of Winnie the Pooh! Can we watch that someday, 'cuz I have the book of that but I want to see the movie!"

I'm looking forward to: Going to the fair on Monday. I love the fair, and I love the looks on the kids' faces when they see the animals and go on the rides. However, I am not looking forward to the amount of money it is going to cost us to go to the fair on Monday. Yikes. We are having a garage sale tomorrow, for the sole purpose of raising money to go to the fair. I am looking forward to that, too!

Missing: Still missing one tennis shoe, which I really want to find before we go to the fair Monday! Oh, funny story, recently we were getting ready to go somewhere, and we had the kids grab their buddies and drinks and line up by the front door so we could get them out of the way grab the last few things we needed. When we looked at the line to make sure they had their stuff, Ben was holding a box of nursing pads. From my bathroom. Because that was better than a buddy? Who knows, but that does explain a little why I cannot find anything...

Have a great day, and stop by for my garage sale tomorrow! But I'm not going to tell you all where I live, because that would not be safe... Ummm... If you are interested, e-mail me and I'll give you directions!

Tiff, thanks for the comment on my blog. Also, thanks for the wonderful vicarious experience I get going around your home with your young'uns. They are so special. You sure know how to make what others might seem as a life sure to make them all crazy into something funny, sweet, and unique.
